Renaming Heraldry

Personally, I don't see what's wrong with "Heraldry". The name has  
class ;-) and people will learn to spell it just like they learned to  
spell Apache Tapestry or a zillion other projects with unusual names.

Also, don't underestimate the currency the term has already from the  
blog and news coverage since Berkman last week. Re-education/re- 
branding is expensive.

But then, better now than later if there are good reasons for  
changing it. So I abstain, except to agree with Kevin that Ibid  
probably isn't an improvement...
